Theres been alot of newness going on recently with the pregnancy. The first is that fact that im actually looking pregnant now and not just chubby. I have had 2 encounters where strangers have asked how far along I am. It was wierd to me because I thought I just looked chubby. But obviously thats just me and my silly insecurities. I am going to start to not think negativly about the whole body image thing and find some way to embrace it. I think the first step might be to maybe buy my first pair of maternity pants. Right now only one of my pants actually fit okay, and I have ONLY been wearing them.

Another new thing is that I have been feeling my stomach stretching. Its WIERD, and a little painful AND I cant get comfortable at night (because thats usually when the stretching has been occuring). Ive never been a great sleeper to begin with but this just adds to the madness.

The other night I was sitting pretty still and thought I was feeling some gas in my stomach, then all of a sudden I felt something that made my whole body jump...could it be!? It freaked me out a little bit because I think its too early to be feeling movement. The book says that normally movement starts being felt between 18 and 22 weeks. It hasent happend since so im thinking maybe my original suspisicions of gas is all it was. It was exciting to think that maybe I could finally feel this little booger moving, but I think i'll hold my excitment until I know that is what im feeling.

Ill probably be updating this thing more as I get further along because it seems like more and more new things keep occuring. Stay tuned!!!

17 weeks!

Im going to start with a belly picture since some people have been asking. This was at 16wks and 6 days...

Heres another from today, 17 wks and 1 day. Im feeling much larger since the other pic, and its only been a couple of days!

So today was my first second trimester checkup. Doc says everything is great. not much really to report on that. I did schedual the next ultrasound which will be Sept 9th!! Only a few more weeks and we'll know whether weve got a lil lady or a lil man. Im feeling pretty good. The sickness is gone (thank goodness)and ive been eating more which is good. Well I guess I'll leave it at that!!
